Reward increased in killing of 5-year-old Milwaukee girl

MILWAUKEE - The reward has been significantly increased in the case a 5-year-old Milwaukee girl fatally shot last fall while sitting on her grandfather's lap.

Laylah Petersen was killed six months ago when gunfire tore through her grandparents' home. Police say two people approached the house and fired numerous times.

The family announced Wednesday a local attorney added $25,000 to the existing $10,000 reward for the first person who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
